"Most Wanted" Program Effective in Twin Falls County.



By Tom Lopez

In the last three months, the Twin Falls County Sheriff's "Most Wanted Program" has proven to be a positive weapon to fight crime.

Sheriff Wayne Tousley says the program is so effective, t helps deputies track down 30 to 45 percent of local high profile offenders each year.

Sheriff Wayne Tousley, Twin Falls County:

"Our best bet is the public, sometimes it's family that calls in the tip sometimes it's somebody who knows them or may have seen them. Again it depends on how we get the tip and who we try to follow that up."

The sheriff says the program is vital since the department doesn't have the man power to devote the time to track down the county's most wanted.
